Boy, it sure is amazing what a little light can do. I don't know why we finally decided to do it, but we did it. We moved Kember to her own room (probably because she saw her cousin Zoie in her own room in the basement and decided to be just like her) and we are having the boys share a room upstairs. We were putting it off because the lights in the down stairs basement don't work for some reason. Well, after we bought a new bed for visitors (hint hint) I guess that gave us the needed gumption to keep going. We just put a lamp in Kember's room for now until we can get an electrician to fix whatever the problem is (there are many). We also finally fixed the light in the boys room. All it needed was a light bulb, but it wasn't a regular sized one so it wasn't as convenient to get. Well, both are now fixed. Happy day. I should have taken pictures, but it was quite the ordeal to get everyone motivated and moving, and it ended up being pretty late by the time we got to a point to settle everyone in for the night. I hope they all do well. I'm hoping that the boys will sleep longer in the mornings. Kember is our early riser, and well, we'll just have to see. I have plans to put all the toys under the stairs, and to motivate me I moved most of them out into the family room. I don't know how well that will motivate me since it's in the basement and not where people can see, but, it's a start at least. I'm excited, this should be good.
Oh, and randomly....since Dan is on call for Christmas Eve we obviously aren't going anywhere, and for the first time since we've been married we are going to start our own traditions. The only problem is we can't think of a thing to do. Our families did things centered around our big families, so....if anyone has any ideas for our 4, 2, and 1 year old (plus I think Dan's grandparents are coming) let me know. I'm kind of excited.
